Nah, neither strange nor dumb. It's really just a matter of taste.
Most owners do prefer a head-to-head format with playoffs, though. The big advantage that football has over other fantasy sports is the schedule. With one game a week, head-to-head works very smoothly and elegantly (compared to, say, basketball, where one player might play two games with another playing four, and setting lineups is often more a matter of finessing the schedule than choosing the better player), and most football folks like to exploit that fact.
Still, nothing whatsoever wrong with a straight points league if that's your league's preference!
